Lent Day 15-Believe In God

Waiting, trusting, and hoping are intricately connected, like golden strands interwoven to form a strong chain. Trusting is the central strand, because it is the response from the Lord’s children that He desire the most. Waiting and hoping embellish the central strand and strengthen, the chain that connects you to Him. Waiting for the Lord to work, with your eyes on Jesus, is evidence that you really do trust Him. If you mouth the words, “I trust You Lord,” while anxiously trying to make things go your way, your words ring hollow. Hoping is future-directed, connecting you to your inheritance in heaven. However, the benefits of hope fall fully on you in the present.

Because you belong to the Lord, you don’t just pass time in your waiting. You can wait expectantly, in hopeful trust. Keep your “antennae” out to pick up even the faintest glimmer of the Lord’s presence.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
